Fuego doesn’t need much of an introduction to most Egyptians. But for those of you that aren’t familiar with the restaurant, it’s the preferred Sushi spot amongst the locals.

You’ll find classic Japanese varieties such as the traditional Nigiri, plus some bizarre, yet tasty creations inspired by the west. For around EGP180 per person (Mondays & Tuesdays), the deal isn’t too expensive considering regular Sushi isn’t a cheap item on any menu in Cairo. Our top tip: make a reservation in advance, and go on a very empty stomach.

The Teppanyaki star of Cairo also serves an ‘all you can eat’ sushi offer including everything from maki to sashimi to nigiri. They also include a glass of sparkling rose wine to slide those delicious Japanese treats down, which is nice. But with so many ‘all you can eat’ sushi offers around Cairo, we think you should visit Shogun for something they do best, which is not the sushi but the teppanyaki meals prepared right in front of you by talented and very theatrical chefs.
